The TCN Writers Incubator Shortlist has been Annnounced!
We launched the TriForce Creative Network Writers Incubator in association with Creative Skillset in February looking for people who are serious about a TV writing career. This exciting initiative aims to change the usual routes of access and mitigate the concept of ‘risk’ that is so prevalent in our industry when engaging with new talent. Tangible and outcome focused, The TCN Incubator seeks to go beyond just another ‘program’ and bring effective and long-standing change.
Submissions have now closed and the 20 shortlisted scripts have been chosen:
